Hey all

I need a little help with some setup on my EC
I ran today at a new asphalt track which because its still new is really low on grip. I'm searching for a bit more front end grip on corner entry and a little more rear end on corner exit I found increasing front droop help the rear but then it started to push more. I was using Corally SSB pre mounts as they are the control tyre for next weeks big meeting.
My setup is as follows

Front
30 wt oil
Blue spring
Silver roll bar
Shocks on outer most hole on arm and inner most on tower
Inner pick ups on upper hole
5.5mm ride height
Up travel 2mm above ride height
Arms with risers plus 1mm

Rear
30 wt oil
White spring
No roll bar
Shocks on outer hole on arm and almost inner on tower
Inner pick ups in upper hole
6mm ride height
Up travel 3mm above ride height
Arms with risers plus 1mm

I forgot to say I'm running a oneway up front

Thanks
Tim

Another great day of racing today. Went 3 for 3 again taking the win with a perfect score (6 out of 6)

Thanks for the fresh sticks EA; they ran awesome! The new sauce worked very well as I bounced back and forth with SXT 2.0

Alex had some major motor/speedo problems, but had his car working well.

Tony had a great run in 19t finishing 2nd and Lil'B finished 2nd in stock (tighten those screws..LOL) Troy had an awesome car all weekend, but had some motor issues.

At the first UK National of the year yesterday I saw some of the team drivers with their 'issued' retail boxed Mi3's

One of them let me have a nose through the box, looks really good, although the setup sheet look like a bit of a nightmare

Foam or rubber? I actually think the biggest improvement will be seen on carpet with foams I have no doubt this car will be awesome on carpet and Seaball will begin his work very soon

The steering on the Mi3 is just BETTER. It's hard to explain, but everyone that has driven the car can't get over how good the steering input feels. The Mi3 has way more steering compared to the previous car, but yet it's easier and smoother to drive

I personally can't really compare this car to any other brand since I've never raced any other brand in 7 years, but I can assure you that it is as good as anything else out there I will also tell you that I changed my car in all 6 races and the car was still good enough to win

Yea it stinks but it works pretty good. He has the 2nd version. What I am selling is a little more refined and works a little better.....I think

Well so far it's proven to be better and more refine outdoor rubber tire so no doubt that will carry over to carpet rubber. The guys in England have run carpet rubber tire quite a bit and the results have been awesome.
